American Ninja Warrior David Flip Rodriguez – The Masked Ninja
Episode 3 starts out with a Wolfpack Ninja conversation about when we first met David Flip Rodriguez and what our first thoughts about him were …and how that quickly changed as we got to know him.
David Flip Rodriguez is a bit of a conundrum; on the surface you saw a troubled kid who is overly emotional and hides behind a mask while DOMINATING the American Ninja Warrior courses. But along with ANW, David Flip Rodriguez has grown up in front of our eyes. He has shed the mask and is a powerful personality, a sweet heart and just the coolest guy you could hope to meet.
We quickly begin to realize that the mask is no longer for David Flip Rodriguez; he has outgrown it and now mostly seems to wear it to show his fans and troubled kids everywhere that he has been there with them. He has felt their pain and can help. He genuinely cares deeply about all the kids he coaches and he is a phenomenal role model by anyone’s standards.
The Mask comes off:
There is so much more to talk about with David Flip Rodriguez, that we will obviously be having him back on.
I would love to see Team Ninja Warrior move to NBC and original Ninja Warrior could move back to Esquire (I would be heartbroken if it went away all together though). You all talk
about how much fun it is as a competitor but as a spectator it’s more fun too. All my friends who haven’t caught Ninja Warrior fever, enjoyed Team Ninja Warrior more than the regular show.
Great thoughts, Allegra! WE TOTALLY AGREE! Although perhaps they can BOTH stay on NBC! Let’s see what happens, but it sure does seem likely to expand the brand and grow the message of health and inspiration! Thanks for the great comment!
